* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Yep, you guessed it: by ''far'' the most talked-about scene in the 2010 remake is the underwater nude ballet.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The nude ballet scene in the 2010 remake. The Italian aria just adds to the [[strike: weirdness]] awesome.
** The lizard-like creature that appears in the original. It's presumably another government experiment, but never explained.
* BrokenBase: If you ask anyone who has seen [[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch (or hasn't seen)]] the 2010 movie and hated it, their reasons for despising the movie will fall under too much {{Gorn}} and/or too much [[{{Fanservice}} nudity]]. [[RefugeInAudacity Isn't that the point?]]
* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[spoiler:They took my penis!]]
* DudeNotFunny: Most of the gore in the 2010 movie went to exaggerated to this.
* HellIsThatNoise
* SoBadItsGood
** The 3D remake is either this or SoCoolItsAwesome
* SpecialEffectsFailure: The gore in the 3D remake. Almost inverted; a lot of the time it comes across as ''too'' realistic, [[NightmareFuel which makes it more disturbing than]] BloodyHilarious.
** Or it was ''supposed'' to be disturbing...horror movie.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Ving Rhames killing as many piranha as possible even as they're biting him, using an [[spoiler:outboard motor]].
-->'''Deputy Fallon''': Chew on this, motherfuckers!
** And if the trailers for 3DD are anything to go by, [[ImplacableMan he survived]].
* CrowningMomentOfFunny: The underwater nude ballet. Everyone in the theater, male and female was laughing their ass off.
** You want funny? Try this: Someone brought their kids to see this movie when I went to see it. They didn't leave UNTIL the nude ballet.



* NightmareFuel: The piranha attack at the wet t-shirt contest. Dear God, the horror. It's the [[{{Berserk}} Eclipse]] UpToEleven, just replace demons with piranhas and with no one to blame.
** Just put this in perspective: Your spring break vacation had just turned into you're own personal D-Day, your friends are brutally murdered either by the piranhas, accidents caused by the piranhas, or because of the desprate people trying to get out of the piranhas' path, and the beaches you visited will have few more things in common with Omaha Beach.
** The attack on the children in the original, and the scene where the young boy sees his father being eaten by the piranhas and almost gets eaten himself.

* FridgeLogic: Why the heck is there a paddle on a large motorboat anyways?
** Perhaps to paddle a life raft, like most normal boats do?
